The Golden State Warriors will be playing against the Phoenix Suns tonight for their fourth game of the 2022-23 NBA season. The Stephen Curry-led team has won two of their games so far, against the LA Lakers and Sacramento Kings. The only game they lost was against Nikola Jokic’s Denver Nuggets. Curry once again leads the charge as he is in the exceptional form currently.

On the other hand, the Suns are entering tonight’s clash with a similar record to the Warriors‘. They have also won 2 of their 3 games so far. The only loss came against Damian Lillard’s Portland Trail Blazers, who won by just 2 points.
Both teams will be missing players due to injuries, which affects the teams’ roster for tonight.
